NAME

       autoip - internet address self-assigner


SYNOPSIS

       autoip [options]


DESCRIPTION

       The  autoipd  daemon configures an IPv4 Link-Local address for a single
       network interface according to the IETF Zeronconf draft standard.  When
       run,  autoipd  automatically  puts itself in the background, then finds
       and claims an available IPv4 Link-Local address. autoipd determines  an
       appropriate  Link-Local address, configures the address, then continues
       running to monitor for collisions  on  that  address.  When  necessary,
       autoipd finds a new address.
